Childbirth Course: The Bradley Method

If you’re considering natural childbirth or are interested in getting a thorough childbirth education, Bradley classes are for you! In my classes, I cover pregnancy nutrition, exercise, how to write a birth plan, the physiology of pregnancy and birth, the stages of labor, avoiding unnecessary intervention, variations and complications, informed consent, natural pain management and relaxation techniques, the postpartum period, and breastfeeding — as well as how your spouse, partner, friend, or family member can “coach” you through labor.
